Pasta Making Workshop

On Tuesday I'm conducting a pasta making workshop among the Tracians (that's the Tracy Public Library). DO come along if you're free. As a teaser, here are some hand-made tortelloni with chard from the market, ricotta, parmigiano, and a healthy dose of nutmeg.

Basically you just roll out a dough of all purpose flour, one egg and water. Put a dollop filling inside. That's made with two bunches of chard cooked down with a little olive oil until dry, mixed with half a container of ricotta and gratings of good parmigiano and nutmeg. Boil these a few minutes and just lace with butter. There's enough flavor inside to make your mouth very happy.

Hi Ken!

This is wonderful, but I'm guessing that you are making "Pasta", not reconstructing the "Past" in the workshop, right?

If I was on your coast, I'd be there with bells on . . .

I bet your workshop is a blast... you would take all the fear out of making pasta. It really is so easy... especially ravioli. Delish.
